advised on the artwork throughout, which will present
a mix of original postmodern and contemporary works by Andy
Warhol, John Baldessari and Alex Katz, as well as other notable
figures of 20th and 21st century art.
Upon retreating to Eden-Roc Pavilion’s sea-facing
Junior Suites, guests will pass by a series of flower paintings by
Andy Warhol in the hallway.
All 31 Junior Suites are being fully
refreshed with creative input from British interior designer
Francis Sultana, and Countess Bergit Gräfin Douglas ensuring
that eighty percent of the suites’ decorative elements were
sourced in Europe, with most coming from France.
Each boasts a direct view of the Mediterranean
Sea and the Lérins Islands, and feature natural
materials such as cotton, linen and wool in a palette of vibrant
blues, pristine whites and shades of green echoing the contrast of
sea, sky and the hotel’s verdant gardens.
The furniture embraces a yachting spirit in
harmonious white with soft-toned wood. Two custom pieces by
Francis Sultana include a private bar console and a glass and
bronze shelving unit named ‘Ella’ after one of the hotel’s
illustrious guests, Ella Fitzgerald.
Ensuring an environment
ideally equipped for the possibility of remote work, each suite in
the Eden-Roc Pavilion features a writing desk by Philippe Hurel.
The Pavilion’s 100-square-metre
Eden-Roc Suite has been reimagined as a seaside penthouse apartment in
soft tones of white, cream and sea blue. The tranquil bedroom
features a four-poster bed facing floor-to-ceiling windows
overlooking the Mediterranean, while the living room invites
guests to make themselves at home with a large
wrap-around sofa, writing desk, dining table and a library.
The suite’s indoors open seamlessly onto an
expansive teak terrace that doubles the overall living space to
200 square metres and includes a graceful pergola and a whirlpool
bath to enjoy an invigorating soak with views of the hypnotic blue
sea. The Eden-Roc Suite is a truly glamorous space, ideal for
hosting a private dinner.
